Bradley was released on $50,000 bail, on the condition that he has no contact with his computer or Google.

LOL what a great article. So he's not allowed to have contact with his computer, I hope it doesn't cheat on him while he is in the slammer.

Google, acting as a sort of middleman, sells ready-made advertising to other sites. He was probably threatening to sabotage that.

This guy definitely makes the Dumbest Criminals of All Time list, though.
